Morning Greatness: Schumer Promises to Bring January 6 Commission Vote to Senate Floor This Week

Good Wednesday morning.

Two minutes of hate:

Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced the Biden Administration intends to give an additional $75 million in “assistance” to the Palestinians Hamas during a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. The meeting followed Blinken’s talk with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu where he reaffirmed America’s commitment to Israel’s security. But this makes no sense because the money given to “the Palestinians” doesn’t go to the Palestinians, it pays for terrorism. What has the billions of dollars in aid given to the Palestinians over the years done for them? Hospitals? Infrastructure? Not so much. The hospitals and infrastructure built are used to stage military operations and are subsequently blown up by Israel to stop the attacks. Next, Hamas claims Israel blows up hospitals and Hamas office mates like the Associated Press tells the story of the hospital rubble and the evil Jews who blow up hospitals. Lather, rinse, repeat. The US is arming Hamas to fight Israel while telling Israel the US supports Israel’s right to defend itself against U.S.-funded attacks. Ridiculous.

“In total, we are in the process of providing more than $360 million of urgent support for the Palestinian people, and across these efforts, we will work with partners to ensure that Hamas does not benefit from these reconstruction efforts​,” Blinken said.​

“Asking the international community, asking all of us to help rebuild Gaza only makes sense if there is confidence that what is rebuilt is not lost again because Hamas decides to launch more rocket attacks in the future. So this is vitally important​,” he said.

How? How will the US ensure the money doesn’t go to Hamas? It won’t.

Moving along, Senator Chuck Schumer promises a vote this week in the Senate on another bread and circus political spectacle: the January 6 commission. The House has already voted in favor of establishing the Trump-supporter punishment festival and the Senate needs 60 votes to get the legislation to the floor for a vote. This vote needs to fail, no amendments, no nothing it just needs to die in a fire. I don’t think the Senate will get the votes but the horsetrading process that accompanies such exercises could bend some spineless garbage Republicans to go along. But there’s no need to modify the House bill for some of the feckless GOP senators. Romney is on board with the commission as is Murkowski. The Democrats need seven more GOPers to turn. Collins says she could be moved to support with some “changes.”

The good news is that the efforts to lure vulnerable senators to support the commission are not going well. The Hill writes, “But those efforts are producing little movement among GOP senators, underscoring the uphill and unlikely climb supporters of a commission face to getting the 10 Republican votes they would need to advance the bill in the Senate.”

Meanwhile the information operation inflicted upon the public continues with the trend of likening January 6 to horrific violent, murderous events in US history like 9/11 and Pearl Harbor.

“The 9/11 terrorists and Osama bin Laden never threatened the heart of the American experiment,” [Huffington Post White House correspondent S.V.] Dáte tweeted. “The 1/6 terrorists and Donald Trump absolutely did exactly that. Trump continues that effort today.” Right.
